I have run into a little bit of a problem dealing with EMC Power
Path. I know, your first thought is, so why are you asking this list
about it and not EMC? I have asked EMC indirectly (see below) and did
not really like their answer.
I have some new systems that I installed RH EL 5.1 on with the
assumption that EMC Power Path would be supported on it. And I think it
was, is. I have Power Path install on some other systems running RH AS
4.6. Because the SAN is from EMC is the reason our SAN group wanted me
to use Power Path.
While waiting for our SAN group to allocate disk space and cable
up the systems I have been keeping the system up to date via yum. Along
the way the kernel version has changed and the over all system is now RH
EL 5.2. So when the SAN group told me the SAN was all connected and I
needed to install EMC Power Path is when it was identified there is a
problem. It will not install.
When rpm is run with the latest file from EMC I get an error
stating the software is for RHEL5. That's correct, just RHEL5, no dot
anything. I had our SAN group contact EMC and the response back from EMC
was RH EL 5.2 will not be supported until the 4 QT of this year.
So my first question is has anyone else run into this problem?
If so what did you do?
I know I can probably use the Multi Path software that comes
with Linux, but I would like to keep all my systems configured as mush
the same a possible. This just makes dealing with the SAN group a lot
